The Summer Getaway by Tilly Tennant @TillyTenWriter @bookouture #Review

ARC received from publisher via Netgalley.

Ashley Moon is all set for a dream holiday with her daughter in the glittering French Riviera. But nothing can prepare her for the shock of discovering who’s staying in the villa next door… 

Ashley Moon
 got much more than a suntan on her first ever foreign holiday; one whirlwind romance and nine months later she had a daughter, Molly.

Too heart-broken and proud to ever contact the father, Ashley made a decision to go it alone and raise her daughter herself. Fifteen hard and lonely years later, she finally has the chance to take Molly on her first ever holiday; a gorgeous, all-expenses paid trip to the charming French resort of St Raphael. 

It is the perfect setting for a week of quality time together; they plan to cycle through the sun-drenched vineyards, lounge by the glistening pool and practice their French on friendly locals. And just when Ashley thought things couldn’t get any better, comes the news of a handsome new occupant to the villa next door. 

But fate has other plans for Ashley. One look in to her neighbour’s dark hazel eyes is all it takes to give her the shock of her life. Standing in front of her is Haydon, Molly’s long lost father and the holiday fling she thought she’d never see again. 

As the temperature on the Cote D’Azure steadily rises and Ashley and Haydon begin spend more and more time together, will Ashley find the courage to tell him who she is – and more importantly, who Molly is?

If you are looking for the ideal holiday story or even just to sit back and relax with then I have to recommend The Summer Getaway, especially if you want to escape to France! As ever Tilly Tennant manages to create some warm and likeable characters. In this book we meet Ashley and her daughter Molly who are on holiday in France but life throws a curve ball at Ashley when she is confronted with her past in the shape of Haydon. What follows is a story that shows missed opportunities but also the fact that maybe you can get a second chance.

I have to admit there were times when I wanted to jump in the story and make some of the characters see sense! They will make you feel all the emotions with them which is always a good thing as it shows you have made that connection with the characters. There is the addition of a little bit of tension to the story with miscommunication along with the reluctance and nerves on Ashley's part to discuss the past.  

If you are in need of a pick me up then The Summer Getaway will be ideal there is a lovely relaxed but heartwarming feeling to it that will guarantee the reader will be left smiling. At its heart this story is about family and how complicated life can be along with showing a sweet and beautiful romance!

Charmed from start to finish, a perfect summer story!
